Recording Student attendance

Attendance Monitoring

Attendance is monitored by the School as part of our more general monitoring of student progress.  Keeping attendance helps alert staff to any additional pastoral or academic support needs students might require. Staff can then provide advice, guidance or support in a timely and useful manner.

Attendance must be taken at all small teaching events (tutorials or seminars). If a class has less than 51 students and has NO tutorial or seminars, attendance must be taken at the lecture.  

Attendance is taken using the Student Engagement Monitoring System created by Student Systems (more details of the system are below).

The course secretary will create and upload course registers at the end of teaching week 2. Please note that until this has been completed you will not be able to view any of your group information.  Students can still transfer in and out of their courses and tutorials in Week 2 so there may be some changes to your tutorial groups.

When your course secretary has uploaded your register information you can access these by following the guidance below.
